The point creation tool is used to create new point features. This button is available in the bottom bar of the opened map.
Point features can be created by tapping the map, using the internal GPS, or auto-collecting with GPS location using distance or time.
This creates new points where the screen is tapped. The New Feature dialog will appear to allow editing the attributes.
Tap anywhere on the screen to place a feature vertex at the current GPS location.
This option will automatically create new points using the GPS location. A new point will be created once the specified distance interval is reached from the last placed point. The distance interval is set in the configuration. Use the check button or click the create point icon again to stop collecting point features. Select features with the Feature Edit tool to edit the attributes.
This option will automatically record vertex points at a fixed time interval. The time interval is set in the configuration. Use theConfirm button or click the create point icon again to stop collecting point features. Select features with the Feature Edit tool to edit the attributes.
This options will allow you to choose a picture taken on your device and place a picture point according to the EXIF information from the image. Global Mapper Mobile® will search for pictures on your device that were taken within the current screen bounds of the displayed map. To add a picture point with this method, you must allow Global Mapper Mobile® to access the pictures on your device.
To capture a picture and add directly add it to the map, tap and hold on the map. This will open the device camera and allow you to take a picture that will then be added to the map as a picture point at the GPS location. This action can be taken when any tool is selected in Global Mapper Mobile®.

Create a Strike and Dip feature at the GPS location using the magnetic and accelerometer/gravity sensors in the device. To create a strike and dip feature lay the device on the sloped surface, and tap to create the point. The dip, dip azimuth, and strike azimuth will be saved as attributes.
Note: Not all devices will have all of the necessary sensors (this requires a magnetic sensor for heading, and accelerometer/gravity for orientation) to create a strike and dip feature. If this is the case, an alert will be shown when Strike and Dip point create mode is selected.
